Well that’s certainly not the way you’d like to kick off your weekend if you’re a racing fan. Project Cars, one of the most anticipated racing titles ever, isn’t going to be launching this year anymore. Instead, it’s suffered a bit of a delay.

NowGamer had the chance to eyeball a message sent to backers of the gamer detailing the delay. Not long afterwards an official backer confirmed the delay,  stating that Project Cars would now hit shelves  in March next year. The reason for the delay is to allow for extra polish, as well as steer the game away from the business holiday season dominated by larger AAA studios.

As part of a press release (which has yet to go officially public), Head of Studio Ian Bell had this to say:

Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience. Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.

Project Cars, which previously held a November release date, will now reach US shores on March 17th, while European racers will have to wait until the 20th. That’s for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions, with no confirmed date for the Wii U version just yet.
